With an extensive in-house staff and 90,000 sq ft container modification facility, we're able to deliver consistently high quality and work on multiple projects simultaneously for a fast turnaround.

You can rest assured knowing your custom container is safe in our hands. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications through every step of the process.

Renting a moving container from us makes your move much less stressful because you won't have to rush to pack your whole house into a moving truck in one day. Instead, you can take your time packing over the course of a month.

Our ISO shipping containers are weatherproof and come with vault-like security, so you don't have to worry about theft or damage to your belongings.

We prorate your rent by the day after the first 28-day billing cycle, so you don't have to pay for a full month when you only have your mobile containers and offices for a few days.

While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don't have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don't know who's actually building it.

Rest assured knowing your modified shipping container will be built to the highest quality standards. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors check every step of the fabrication process to ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications.

Salt Lake City, Utah, June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CenExel announces the acquisition of Apex Innovative Sciences, parent company of Collaborative Neuroscience Research (CNS) and Hassman Research Institute (HRI), which will be renamed as “CenExel CNS” and “CenExel HRI”, respectively, going forward. CenExel CNS and CenExel HRI consist of five prominent clinical research sites across California and New Jersey with significant expertise in early phase complex clinical trials and particular emphasis on central nervous system (CNS) indications. CenExel CNS will continue to be led by Dr. David Walling, while CenExel HRI will continue under the direction of Dr. Howard Hassman. Both leaders have decades of experience conducting Phase I-IV studies across a variety of CNS medical specialties. The primary therapeutic areas served by these five Centers include Complex Early Phase normal healthy volunteer (NHV) and patient studies, Psychiatry, Addiction (including human abuse liability/human abuse potential), Neurology, Pain, Ethnic Bridging, and General Medicine (particularly vaccine, endocrine, and infectious diseases).

The acquisition of CenExel CNS and CenExel HRI elevates CenExel to be the most prolific wholly-owned neuroscience research site network in the world. These locations expand CenExel’s reach in California and New Jersey. CenExel CNS brings facilities in Garden Grove, CA; Long Beach, CA; and Torrance, CA, adding to CenExel’s five existing California clinical research centers. CenExel HRI has facilities in Berlin, NJ and Marlton, NJ, complimenting CenExel AMRI in Toms River, NJ. Each organization has moved beyond traditional psychiatry to further strengthen CenExel’s overall therapeutic experience, and this acquisition continues their Phase I expansion into other areas of medicine.

CenExel CNS operates in 54,000 square feet of clinical research space, including 60 beds in the Long Beach facility, with an upcoming planned move for this site to a new, nearby, state-of-the-art, 80-bed facility in Los Alamitos, CA. This will include space dedicated for psychedelic research and ethnic bridging studies. CenExel HRI operates in 42,000 square feet of state-of-the-art facilities totaling 90 beds, with 18 beds established for human abuse liability/ human abuse potential studies, and with additional beds in the Berlin facility dedicated to the efficient conduct of normal healthy volunteer studies.

CenExel CNS and CenExel HRI are led by Doctors David Walling and Howard Hassman, with Dr. Tom Zoda serving as the Chief Operating Officer. Doctors Walling and Hassman both have over 30 years of experience in clinical research having served as Principal Investigators for hundreds of clinical trials. Dr. Zoda has over 28 years of experience in senior roles in the pharmaceutical and clinical trials industry. Dr. Zoda will become the Chief Operating Officer of CenExel.

CenExel now comprises 19 of the most proficient, therapeutically-focused, wholly-owned clinical research sites in the country, with special emphases on Psychiatry, Neurology, Pain, Human Abuse Liability, Vaccines/Immunology, Dermatology, Ethnic Bridging, Sleep, and Clinical Pharmacology/Phase I. On a combined basis, CenExel’s clinical research units have more than 500 inpatient beds with the ability to perform both simple and highly complex early phase trials. Each of the CenExel Centers of Excellence units has an outstanding track record of assisting pharmaceutical sponsors with protocol development, study design, and conduct in Phase I-IV trials to develop new therapeutics for improved patient care. Through the acquisition of Apex Innovative Sciences, Dr. Larry Ereshefsky also joins CenExel and brings tremendous scientific affairs consulting expertise.

CenExel CNS and CenExel HRI will benefit from the CenExel site network’s fully integrated and collaborative processes, which include centralized budgeting, business development, contracting, standard operating procedures, rater training, and quality management, among other functions.

“The addition of CenExel CNS and CenExel HRI establishes the foremost therapeutically-focused clinical research site network in the neurosciences,” said Tom Wardle, CenExel CEO. “These teams have always delivered scientific expertise and operational excellence. We’re excited to work with such exceptional leaders in the CNS research community.”

We are very pleased to be joining the CenExel site network,” said Dr. Howard Hassman. “CenExel’s depth of experience and market-leading scale provides a tremendous platform for growth. We look forward to combining our extensive resources to provide unparalleled efficiency and clinical expertise as we build the industry’s highest quality and most dependable partner for complex early-stage clinical research services.”

“CenExel CNS and CenExel HRI, in combination with the rest of CenExel’s sites, now offer the foremost scientific proficiency, clinical content expertise, and operational capability in the industry,” said Dr. David Walling. “We recognize the value of coordinating with our customers to assist in the development and execution of protocols by deploying best practices in clinical research, especially pertaining to clinical quality, compliance, and patient engagement.”

CenExel was formed in 2018, and since its formation has strategically invested to support organic growth in its Centers of Excellence while also pursuing acquisitions of state-of-the-art research centers across the U.S. The mission of CenExel is to work with trial Sponsors and Contract Research Organizations to drive efficiencies in clinical research while reducing the costs and development timelines for innovative therapies to advance patient care.

California Labor Commissioner Cites Torrance Car Wash More than $800,000 for Wage Theft Violations

Long Beach—The Labor Commissioner’s Office has cited Torrance Car Wash more than $800,000 for wage theft violations affecting 35 workers, including minimum wage, overtime and contract wage violations. An investigation found that some workers worked beyond 80 hours per pay period, but received pay for approximately 80 hours no matter how many hours worked.

Long Beach—The Labor Commissioner’s Office has cited Torrance Car Wash more than $800,000 for wage theft violations affecting 35 workers, including minimum wage, overtime and contract wage violations. An investigation found that some workers worked beyond 80 hours per pay period, but received pay for approximately 80 hours no matter how many hours worked. Others who reported to work on time were made to wait before punching in and not paid for that time.

“The business owners violated labor laws to avoid paying workers the wages they were owed and refused to cooperate with our investigation by withholding documents during our inspection,” said Labor Commissioner Lilia García-Brower. “My office had to get additional warrants to conduct our inspection of the business.”

The Labor Commissioner’s Office opened an investigation into Torrance Carwash Inc. dba Torrance Car Wash after receiving a referral from the CLEAN Car Wash Campaign. Investigators attempted to conduct an inspection on March 4, 2021, but were refused entry to view records, despite having an inspection warrant signed by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge requiring access to the company’s payroll records and employee-related documents. Onsite inspections were conducted the following week with additional warrants.

The audit of payroll records from April 9, 2018 to March 7, 2021 determined that the employer failed to pay workers for all of the hours worked, did not pay workers for waiting times, and did not provide workers with required meal and rest breaks.

The citations, penalties and interest issued total $815,311 of which $746,061 is payable to workers for unpaid minimum wages and overtime, liquidated damages, waiting time penalties, meal and rest period premiums, penalties for the employer’s failure to pay the workers with itemized wage statements, unpaid contract wages and accrued interest.

The citations issued to Torrance Carwash, Inc., manager Jesus Hernandez, and owners Susan Amini and Reza Albolahrar also include civil penalties of $69,250 for failing to pay minimum wages, overtime, meal and rest premiums, and failure to issue proper itemized wage statements. Civil penalties collected are transferred to the State’s general fund as required by law.

Enforcement investigations typically include a payroll audit of the previous three years to determine minimum wage, overtime, and other labor law violations, and to calculate payments owed and penalties due. When workers are paid less than minimum wage, they are entitled to liquidated damages that equal the amount of underpaid minimum wages plus interest.

The Department of Industrial Relations’ Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (California Labor Commissioner’s Office) combats wage theft and unfair competition by investigating allegations of illegal and unfair business practices.

The Labor Commissioner’s Office in 2020 launched an interdisciplinary outreach campaign, “Reaching Every Californian.” The campaign amplifies basic protections and builds pathways to affected populations so workers and employers understand legal protections and obligations, and the Labor Commissioner’s enforcement procedures. Californians can follow the Labor Commissioner on Facebook and Twitter.
